12 jalapeño poppers


  • 6 jalapeño peppers, halved and seeded

  • 7 ½ ounces cold garden vegetable cream cheese (such as Philadelphia)

  • 6 bacon strips, halved lengthwise


  1. Preheat an air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Fill each jalapeño half with cream cheese and wrap with a halved bacon strip. Tuck in bacon ends or use toothpicks to secure.

  3. Place jalapeño poppers inside the air fryer basket, working in batches to avoid overcrowding if necessary.

  4. Cook in the preheated air fryer until bacon is done to your liking, 10 to 12 minutes. Keep poppers warm in an oven on the lowest setting while air-frying the remaining poppers.


Keep cream cheese refrigerated until ready to use. Try different flavors for variety!

Thick-cut bacon does not work well, so use regular bacon. Halving the bacon lengthwise makes it easier to wrap around the peppers.
